Default Wave 2 - Moroccan Stew

* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 large sweet potato, peeled, cut into chunks (about 2 cups)
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 2 large carrots, sliced
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 2 teaspoons ground cumin
* 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 (14.5 ounce) can Hunt'sŪ Diced Tomatoes in Juice, undrained
* 1 3/4 cups water
* 1/2 cup raisins - I left these out
* 2 cups whole wheat couscous, uncooked - I used less
* 2 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey
* 1/4 cup shelled pistachio nuts, chopped

* I added chopped zucchini and a shot of Tabasco - next time I am just going to add the couscous right to the stew during the last few minutes of cooking time.*

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes, onions, carrots and garlic; stir. Cook 6 minutes, or until onions are tender, stirring frequently. Stir in cumin, ginger, cinnamon and salt; cook 1 minute.

Add tomatoes with their liquid, water and raisins; stir. Bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 25 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

Cook couscous according to package directions while simmering tomatoes; cover to keep warm. Add turkey to vegetable mixture; cook 5 minutes, or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve stew spooned over the couscous; sprinkle with pistachios.

This is very similar to the recipe for Moroccan Vegetable Stew in The Mediterranean Diet book except that one is completely vegetarian, and includes several legumes. If people are interested, I can put it here--it also appears to be a Wave 2 recipe due to the sweet potato. I'm not sure how many people actually have The Mediterranean Diet book.
